The Chief Cultural and Leisure Officer’s Association welcomes you to its new blog!
CLOA’s mission is to provide leadership for the sector by shaping transformation; facilitating innovation and improvement; and advocating the value and impact of culture and leisure services in achieving stronger, healthier and more vibrant communities.
This will be achieved by:
Building and developing strategic alliances with Government, and a range of national and regional bodies, to influence and inform thinking for future policy direction, strategic planning and innovation, and resources;
Communicating and championing the positive role that culture and leisure services play in delivering better outcomes for local communities (including health improvement; economic development and regeneration; learning and skills; environmental sustainability; social cohesion and improving community safety); and
Connecting and engaging the CLOA membership in a positive and proactive way to our mission, ensuring that their experience, innovation, learning and skills are shared, and the abilities of members are fully utilised to provide effective peer group support across the culture and leisure services sector in England and Wales.
In February 2012 we wil be launching our new website, so watch this space!
